About me

I like to learn. That's an art and a science.

Profile Picture

The above phrase by Katherine Johnson describes perfectly what I love the most. I am a lifelong learner with a maker spirit. I love spending hours learning something new and working on exciting new projects involving technology, science, and movies.

With my recent experience, I specialized in data analysis and recommendation systems. I am always looking for projects that seek to transform information into value for the community we live in.

I aspire to share everything what I have discovered and learned with the world and transform our reality.

Resume

More of my credentials.

I obtained a bachelor's degree in Mechatronics which encouraged my passion for learning and discovering how stuff works. I breifly worked in the steel industry with one of the world's leading companies, where I learned about the production environment, quality standards and customer satisfaction. With a master's degree in both Computer Science and Education, I developed a strong scientific mindset with a cognitive approach, alongside the technical skillset that allows me to face the many challenges in today's fast-growing information world.

Work Experience

Maker Project Developer

Aug 2020 - present

Aerobot Planet

I design challenging projects to foster creativity and innovation in kids ages 9 to 17. I specialize in creating engaging hands-on experiences through which children learn the basics of electronics, mechanics and computer science.

Due to the COVID19 restrictions, we launched the first online AP courses. We are currently studying how children learn in this environment to identify the main challenges and implement the best practices to procure active learning.

Quality Specialist

Jan 2016 - Dec 2016

Ternium Puebla

I was part of the ISO/TS:16949 certification of the plant and was responsible of the completition of all relevant documents, which required special attention to detail and a statistical mindset.

I worked closely with customers' standards satisfaction, and monitored performance complaints solutions and customer service satisfaction.

I also implemented a data analysis engine to deliver relevant product quality insights.

Production Intern

Jul 2015 - Dec 2015

Ternium Puebla

I worked in a project to monitor and reduce the fuel consumption of the main furnace in the production line, for which I developed and implemented control measures to standardize operational practices. Also, I mentored continual improvement projects led by operative teams and together we won the national competition in the safety category.

Education

Master in Computer Science

Aug 2018 - Jun 2020

Tecnologico de Monterrey

I was granted the Academic Excellence Scholarship from Tecnologico de Monterrey while also being recipient of the National Graduate Studies Scholarship from the Mexican’s National Council for Science and Technology (CONACyT).

I specialised in probabilistic graphical models to build recommendation systems using Bayesian networks. I developed an algorithm that combines expert knowledge with data insights into a context aware model for movie recommendations.

Master in Education

May 2018 - Aug 2020

Universidad del Valle de México

I received partial financial aid from UVM and the Department of Public Education (Secretaria de Educacion Publica - SEP) to support my studies.

I specialized in innovation and educational technologies. I collaborated with educators all across the country, with diverse backgrounds and teaching at different school levels. We designed and implemented applied research projects that can transform learning environments and bring the classroom revolution we need today.

Bachelor of Engineering

Aug 2011 - Dec 2016

Tecnologico de Monterrey

I studied Mechatronics Engineering with an academic scholarship by Tecnologico de Monterrey and graduated with honours.

I became proficient with electronic and mechanic design to implement automated projects, from self-driving mini-robots to motion stabilizers for Parkinson's Disease patients.

Projects

The best way to learn something is by doing it.

I have worked with academic and start-uo projects. Different as they are, they have allowed me to keep learning and working hard to obtain the desired results.
